What happened to the charge of rape?
Oh, dear, I’ve been enlightened;
The Trump SS have made such threats,
The plaintiff’s now too frightened.

The Trump and Ryan Anthem

Russia’s muse restrained, Rand shrugged
the Soviet sphere when she discovered,
across the sea, a fountainhead
that fed her streams of US wealth
for writing what appeals to youth,
so unaware of their mortality,
dazed by hormones, seeking identity,
routinely resisting authority
restricting them in adolescence
(remember rebels Dean and Brando?),
a phase of passing callowness
that’s feckless cruelty when their older
selves, like Donny Trump and Ryan,
propagate her selfish anthem.

Thoughts on November 13, 2016 (the End of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy)

This week, we closed compassion’s door.
We’ll wall it up with bricks.
It’s just an ancient rite, no more.
Why mention politics?

(I couldn't find news about today's closing of the Doors of Mercy at Roman Catholic cathedrals around the world, so here's an article on last year’s opening of them. The brickwork to seal the one in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome will start next week.)

A new word to me and perfect for the katastrophe:

Kakistocracy

Birthed from a lump
of kaka dump
from Donald Trump

Kakistocrats
and KKK rats
beat Democrats.

The One Source, and End, and Test of Trump's Claims: Sentiment

Fact-Checks be damned! If some vague Sentiment
Is gleaned, that's all mobs want and all Trump meant.
Thus ‘walling out Bad Hombres’ triumphs, sans
One brick of Detail for Amerrorcans.

Since the previous thread was up to 7 pages, this one was supposed to be the more-manageable continuation, not specifically Trump-oriented. But if you prefer the old one, carry on. It just goes to show that size doesn't matter.

It also just goes to show that I'm not paying attention.

Here's what I posted to the earlier thread by mistake, thus pushing this thread a bit farther down the board. Oops.

“He was willing to sacrifice his personal interests to put this behind him and move forward.”
—Trump Attorney Daniel Petrocelli, announcing a $25 million settlement agreement involving three fraud lawsuits filed against Donald Trump and his now-defunct Trump University (San Diego, 18 November 2016)


How nobly Trump fell on his sword
by settling before he was gored!
.....His selfless position
.....deserves recognition:
how 'bout the Best Actor award?

Twitter, The Twister Of News and National Dump For Partisan Trump-Tanks

Twitter's flood this Election Year
Coursed fake news through the Twittersphere,
A system that made profits from
A Nation polarized and dumb.

Default An Obsessive Repulsive

The Scab Picker

Dark immigrants,
diseased, in rags,
come here to heal.
He picks the scabs.

Assaulted women
that he bags
are on the mend.
He picks the scabs.

Those unemployed
white men he snags
beat browns and blacks.
He picks the scabs.

The president
his party gags
and whips endures.
He picks the scabs.

Election Results Err Live On CNN

To shock the tribe of Pollsters and Predictors,
The Trump and Pence camp somehow proved the victors.
Blitzer turned to his experts, but in vain:
No glossy graphs, no pundits could explain
How she could save us from the brink of doom,
Nor could resuscitate the blue newsroom;
Not even John King with his Board of Magic
Could flip the numbers and make fate less tragic.
